Active Play Idea #12 ‘Bucket Walk’ was created for Nicole’s niece who loved craft and an outdoor adventure when she was little. She also loved computer games – so this was a great alternative to screen time.

Kids + buckets is a winning combination when it comes to play. If your child isn’t into craft then creating a small nature table for their collection may appeal. Mix it up by adding a Scavenger Hunt to your walk – there’s a great one on Nature Play CBRs website.

You can do this play idea with babies as well – let them feel the textures of the different items you find and smell flowers and crushed leaves. Talk about what you can feel, see and hear – babies love this.
